Goes without saying but this is WAAAAAYYYYYY overdue. I'll definitely tune in.

I did hear there was a 60% chance of the weather delaying this.

Why was it overdue? Flying with the Russians the last several years has been cheap, safe, and reliable.

I'm the sort of person who will always think Elon Musk is a tool. However, I must admit that SpaceX has done much to break up the space industrial complex the last few years.

Like VGT said, it’s humiliating. We’re the only country to land a person on another celestial body or send a probe beyond our solar system and we’re forced to rely on one of our largest adversaries to put our people into LEO. I wouldn’t care if a native program cost 4x what Russia was charging, it’s worth it.

Not to mention this is the same country who cut off gas supply to Europe a few years ago, then signed a deal with Ukraine to get it back flowing again, which cased the Prime Minister to get 7 years in jail for signing that deal. Shady to say the least on all ends.

I wouldn't trust Russia with a glass of milk.

Incredible. Absolutely incredible.
